I can only hope that there's a secondary meaning to 'bible' in the graphic design industry, or that's some serious plagiarism there.

Did you know the word "bible" actually originates from the Greek word biblia, which translates as "books"?

So when early religious Judeo-Christian texts were bound together they were called "Bibles"...

--------

Anyways, in the context of the industry a bible is usually the reference book for a project, containing everything style related in order to have a single point of reference to check new work against.

This is so that a project may remain consistent within its style and visual approach, and also acts as a means of ensuring that third party agencies, eg Marketing or web design firms, create their supporting products in such a way that they retain the look and feel of the product they are advocating.
